Thomas Davis dropped a surprising nugget of information this week on the NFL Network regarding the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The former Carolina Panthers great began by suggesting that Alabama’s Bryce Young would be a great fit in the Panthers’ organization because of his resume and SEC experience.

“He would fit well in Carolina, if they were going to draft him,” Davis said. “But like you say DJ, I don’t think he’s going to be their pick. I think it’s going to be a very, very surprising pick in Carolina. I will say this, if this pick happens that who I think they are in love with, I’m not a fan of it.”

That, of course, prompted his colleagues on the set to clamor for more.

“I just know that there are a couple of guys upstairs that are enamored by the physical ability of Anthony Richardson, I’ll just say,” he said of the Florida quarterback. “He’s not Cam Newton. We watched this kid play a lot, me being an SEC guy. He has all the physical characteristics of being a really good quarterback in the NFL. But I don’t think he’s going to be that great player that the Carolina Panthers need, to take them to the next level.”

Davis again noted that Young is a proven winner, as well as Ohio State’s CJ Stroud.

As for Richardson and Kentucky’s Will Levis, who Davis said have both been in programs that could potentially be good, but just haven’t.

“The reason, to me, has been the quarterback position,” Davis said.
